COVID - 19 UPDATE

Due to recent cases as it relates to college campuses returning, we have made the difficult decision to hold this event virtually on November 12, 2020. Scholarship deadline has been extended to 10/31 as a result of this. 

Due to virtual nature of the event, we will not be hosting the career fair portion. Instead, we direct students to https://www.vscpa.com/students for a career showcase for 10/29.

We will have a panel discussion and award scholarships. Students must be present on Zoom call to receive scholarship.

We love our students, too!

Fall Student Night

The Roanoke Chapter is committed to growing the next generation of CPAs! Every year, we host an event in September for students across the Valley in order to give them access to some of the top employers in the region, as well as hear from people who have been where they are and can answer their questions. Employers, please contact us if you are interested in setting a table up to get your company in front of some potential hires!

In order to be eligible for a scholarship you must attend a college in our geographic footprint: Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Clifton Forge, Covington, Lexington, Pearisburg, Pulaski, Radford, Roanoke, Rocky Mount, Salem and Stuart.

The event for 2020 will be held on September 24, 2020 at the Holiday Inn Roanoke - Valley View to ensure adequate space in light of recent COVID - 19 restrictions. UPDATE: Event has been postponed to November 12, 2020 in a virtual format.
